TWQ: Lesser Known Favourite Films

Today, TWQ (the Weekend Question) asks you to choose a few of your favourite films that are not ones that people choose regularly.

Can you list some of your favourite films that are not regularly chosen by others as ones they like? List as many as you wish.

My answers are:

* The Mist

* 30 Days Of Night

* Sophie Scholl  (German film)

* Same Time, Next Year

* Pleasantville

* The Others

* Went The Day Well (British film made in 1942 about German inmfiltration in a small village)

Now it's over to you...

For my own - What Dreams May Bring, Message in a Bottle, For Love of the Game, The Five People You Meet in Heaven (made for TV movie but very, very good!), Gettysburg, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Kiss Me Kate, Ten Things I Hate About You, and Say Anything.

The girl on the bridge. (La fille sur la pont).

oh and I should add a space selection:

Silent Running.

Butterfly Effect was a good one.
Susan, I can see from which era your favourites are.

Linda, Bee, glad you like Same Time Next Year. The music and pictures between the scenes is wonderful. A fantastic comedy with heartbreaking moments
